i hope you have enough free board at the transom to cope with all that weight, i had this conversation with the mca re coding and they're totally oblivious that they're making the boats unseaworthy by making us load all this kit on for coding, not saying yours is not seaworthy but you will be carrying around at least 2 extra people in weight every time you go out, i'm all for safety but it works both ways, in all the years i've been ribbing i've know of only one rib that has sunk without trace, ribs are the safest things in the water yet the mca still generalize the coding rules, the anchors they make us carry will also hold a yacht of the same waterline length and they are at best twice as heavy at worst three or four times as heavy, there you go got my blood pressure up again, think i'll have another cuppa!

There are two pieces of equipment missing from your list that I can see.

1x RN Air/sea Rescue Merlin flying above you at all times.
1x RNLI Severn class in close proximity at all times.

Add those two and you should be ok, but you can never be TOO safe.

Well done Jono for highlighting how woefully under-equipped most of us are in the safety dept. I'm off today to buy all of that stuff and a bigger boat.

Jono, some questions,

Why two Danforth anchors, and the rope size looks a little thin for a coded boat unless the rules have changed it used to be 12mm. How do you fly the anchor day shape ball? photo please.

Why so many red flares and no white? I would have thought the normal coastal pack would do.

Do you know how to use a tourniquet? dangerous piece of kit which you can do more harm than good with. Why 4 x airways? who is using them?

Why some many knives, you could start a small war with all that lot. Why a personal EPIRB each? do you really need them on a rib used for coastal passages.

You need some more fire extinguishers.

Why 10 life jackets? but only 12 litres of water? thought the recommendation was 2 litres for each person on board.

Some good items listed though but probably a bit OTT unless you are corssing the Atlantic.

Pete

Yeah, 6mm chain? Is that correct?

I use 10mm, I tried 12mm, but it nearly killed me hauling it all back onboard. Spittle123 got that with the 6.5m.

I believe Jono has completed the RNLI's new first aid course which includes the use of tourniquet. Its dangerous in the wrong hands but in the right nads its a lifesaver, better to lose a limb then be dead. The Israeli bandages are an excellent bit of kit too. Where did you get yours from Jono as our Dr on station is trying to find out?

An anchor would be good, second thought just take some rope and use the engine!
